    I'm a little confused regarding which version of Window 7 to buy. I want to buy the full version Home Edition 64 Bit which is supported by Microsoft. There are two versions displayed, one significantly cheaper than the other. There must be a reason why. Can anyone clarify this for me?

    The cheaper one is probably the upgrade package. If you have a functioning pc with XP or Vista, that's what you'd use. If you want to install 7 on a drive with no OS, you'll need the full package. That's my understanding anyway.
